Patterson Canal Corridor | Dayton, OH
Client: City of Dayton
On the Patterson Canal Corridor, the Landscape Architects' strong vision created a carefully integrated and appropriately re-scaled urban corridor which emphasizes spaces for people and a bold solution that celebrates Dayton’s culture and history. The signature elements of the project are the iconic History Pylons. Visually powerful vertical pylon elements placed at key locations along the pedestrian promenade provide opportunities for telling the story of the history of Dayton, promote walkability with pedestrian wayfinding, and provide visual cues for pedestrians as they stroll along the Corridor. Together, the bold design elements signify this space as unique and special from other spaces in Dayton’s urban fabric. The finished product is well loved, and has become a catalyst to a great new downtown development along the corridor.
